Guns will never be out of the picture nor will criminals. Therefore criminals, people who don't follow laws, will get there hands on guns no matter the rules. And if we did somehow get all the guns out of the United States, criminals would then just smuggle guns over the border. After the guns made it back into the cycle the criminals would then act as businessmen. Choosing their best target market to make the most profit. As soon as this process happens the only people who won't have weapons are the ones who are law abiding citizens. Left defenseless and vulnerable to any and all criminals you now are going to be the victim we all hear about in the news the next day. For example out of the multiple movie theaters that were all 20 minutes away from James Holme's apartment, he chose the one for which banned gun laws.
